Do you feel like you need another room in your home? Are you desperate to have more space? Well, a flat roof is a great way to make a new space. If you’ve ever lived in a home with a pitched roof, you know what we mean – the rooms have weird slants and, often, the attic is unusable. And good luck trying to catch some sun on a 45 degree angle!
Here are some great ideas to create usable spaces with a flat roof:
Flat Roof Deck: While this is a good idea, there are some things to consider before doing it. Consult with a professional roofer to see if your idea can work. He’ll also tell you if your plan conforms to the local building codes.
Flat Roof Garden: The cost of food is on the rise, and the quality of some of it is questionable. Why not use the free space on your roof to grow essentials, or create an amazing rooftop sanctuary with beautiful plants and flowers to attract birds? Many city dwellers have turned these ideas into realities.
Are You a Golfer? You can’t practice putting on a pitched roof! But with a flat roof, you can make your own little practice area and shave a few strokes off your game.
Here’s the best part – a flat roof is cheaper to install and recoat than a pitched roof. Depending on the material you choose, it may need recoating every 3 or 4 years.
